Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: 2.1
Fix Version/s: None
This is part of the proposal to integrate MTJ, netlib-java and commons-math which has been well received on the developers' list, @see http://www.nabble.com/commons-math,-matrix-toolkits-java-and-consolidation-tt23537813.html
This depends on issue
Matrix Toolkits for Java has functionality that is missing from commons-math, such as linear solvers, sparse storage classes and efficient implementations of standard algorithms using the BLAS/LAPACK API. As commons-math is starting to expand its linear algebra footprint, it makes a lot of sense for these projects to combine.
The author of matrix-toolkits-java is happy to release all his code under an Apache licence. The maintainer of matrix-toolkits-java (i.e. me!) is happy to direct all future users of matrix-toolkits-java toward commons-math once the functionality is present. MTJ will then make a release with all classes being marked @Deprecated.
